Boston University Accreditation

Welcome to Boston University’s reaccreditation website.

Boston University is proud to be a member of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), one of six regional accrediting organizations in the United States, and has been accredited by NEASC since 1929.

Accreditation is a process of peer review that assures the academic and financial integrity of participating institutions. Every ten years, NEASC member institutions undertake a comprehensive evaluation for accreditation. As part of this process, Boston University has prepared a self-study report addressing NEASC’s Eleven Standards.

Boston University’s self-study report is published here in full and is also downloadable as a PDF. We hope that this self-study will provide a useful overview of Boston University and we welcome your comments on the report, which may be addressed to Doug Sears at or (617) 358-1360.
